How It Works

Local Reads is a new marketplace for book lovers to buy and sell used books in Kelowna.

Sell a book that you no longer need and find a new book you'd like to get your hands on.

Unlike classified ads which expire, at you can list your book for free and your books remain part of the catalogue until sold providing the perfect place to find both bestsellers and specialized books that might otherwise be hard to find used.

Each book listing shows the area where the book is located. All books are local so you're never too far away from the read you want.

  • Financial Transactions Online
    All book purchases are made online making it easy and convenient for you to buy used.

  • Book Pickup
    When and where you pick up your book is something you will discuss with the book seller. Read our Tips for Book Pickup

  • Transaction Fee
    For book buyers, the service is free.

  • For book sellers, we charge $1.49 per transaction plus 10% of the purchase price. As a seller, you don't pay until we sell your books.
